My Kimono

Kimono

love.

the scoop

Everyone, everywhere is showing their kimono love! I had just one as seen here and here and it was a few years old. So I decided I needed another one or maybe two. Ha ha.  I was given a gift card to Amazon for my birthday and decided it should be used to add a couple of kimonos to my closet. So my search began. Finding kimonos to love was not a problem, but picking just a couple from all the beautiful options was a problem. 

I am in love with leaf print this season and wanted to add it to my closet so when I saw this kimono I knew it was the one! I ordered and to my surprise it arrived in just a couple of days. Often when I order from Amazon the product comes from another country and takes weeks so I figured this one would too. I was happily surprised! I can't wait to show you the other one I ordered. At any rate I am all good on kimonos now.

Linking my kimono, wedges and cami. My shorts are old but linking simialr and fun wicker bags. I got my Baublebar earrings at Target early Spring.

my look

I decided to keep this kimono the star of the show so went with an all white column. White denim shorts and a white cami to be exact. Tan wedges and a wicker bag completed my look. For jewelry I wore BaubleBar tassel earrings in white and a white watch. I also wore a layered necklace. It all turned out great for a causal summer look.

I have used this self tanner for a couple of years now and really like it. It is a mouse so easy to apply and provides instant color. I only use it on my legs usually but have used it all over.

Bahama Mama

the scoop

Every once in a while I love to stop by our local thrift shops and pick out a complete outfit. Just to see if I can do it. And I always seem to find at least one treasure. On this trip I found two! First, I found the top. It is a100% pure silk, Tommy Bahama brand and my size exactly! Win! I thought to myself, but what would I wear it with? I moseyed on over to the skirt rack and low and behold this skirt was singing a sweet tune to get my attention. Crazy because it looked to be just my size also. I had never heard of the brand but it seemed well made. The seams were straight, stitching was tight and even and for being preused it seemed in perfect condition. Have you ever heard of the brand Bubblegum? I looked it up and it was a really popular brand in the 80s. I guess I totally missed that, well being busy working, going to school and raising two sons. But better late than never, right? 

and something else

This is a little different topic but I want to let you know that I have closed several of my social media accounts. I took a lot of time to consider this move and the effects it will have to my blog but at the end of the day I don't like these platforms and the things they represent. I am still on Instagram (not sure how long), Pinterest (which I still love) and YouTube (considering future use of this platform). Anyway you will no longer find me on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ so if you want to easily keep in touch sign up for my updates or follow me on Bloglovin.

Meant To Be

my look

The minute I picked up the skirt I could envision it with the top so I handed them to my husband to pay for them and literally skipped out the door! And my mind's eye was correct. It was the cutest look ever. The skirt has slits to the knees on both sides and I had been wanting a denim skirt all spring but wasn't finding something unique. Silly me, a couple of years ago I got rid of all my denim skirts thinking I was too old to wear them. But all's well that ends well. To complete my look I wore my new favorite pair of tan wedges and carried my Ark bag. For jewelry I wore my Tucknuck tassel earrings. My biggest fan, gave me the two paws up.

Baggy Pants

Every once in a while . . .

I love my baggy pants!

the scoop

I have several pairs of linen pants fashioned in a relaxed or even baggy style. I like them big enough that they are almost falling off. Perfect for my fat days! You can see me wearing them here too. 

Here's the link to my exact top and other fabulous tops along with linen pants.

my look

This outfit started out with the top. It is so cute and comfy with lots of fun details. It has tassels on the sleeves and I love how it is held up by the straps around my neck. They are adjustable so I can raise of lower if needed. It has a pretty peplum hem, is shorter, made of a soft silky fabric and it is lined. Love!  I wore it with my linen pants and a pair of leather flip flops for a casual fun outfit. Big hoop earrings and a straw clutch completed my look!

Linking some fabulous hats, flip flops and bags to create your own look!
